Jacques from Confluence
Brewing, left, is a bright, invigorating saison.
Tongue-curling, refreshing. The Strawberry Tart
Brewery, right, recently on tap at Firetrucker Brewery.
Color of homemade jam, lovely fruit flavor. Would make a fine
Exile Brewing. Oh
Kee Pale Ceremony, left, is bodied but hoppy. Both
refreshing and flavorful. A good beer for the changing of the
season. Praha Dark Czech Lager, center. Initial
smoke gives way to rich, roasted malt and hops. Finishes bright.
Nightfall Porter, right, roasted malt and caramel
clings to the palate. A robust brew best suited for harsh winter
from Exile. The Cascade Session Black IPA, right.
Light on bitterness, heavy cocoa on first taste, then mellows.
Makes me desirous for Maytag
Blue Cheese and Rubschlager Pumpernickel. Dry-hopped Imperial
Squat IPA, center, sports a caramel-rich malt and
appealing head. Another dry-hopped beer, the Lucha Libre,
right, brings Old and New World malts together for a clean, yet
left, a bourbon barrel aged quadrupple at Flix
Brewhouse. Rich caramel malt; its liquid flan! Also from
Flix, the Age of Ultron, right, brewed with
malted oats, wheat, and orange blossom honey. Crisp yet well
